The purpose of this study was to assess the benefits of using e-learning resources in a dental training course on Atraumatic Restorative Treatment (ART). This e-course was given in a DVD format, which presented the ART technique and philosophy. The participants were twenty-four dentists from the Brazilian public health system. Prior to receiving the DVD, the dentists answered a questionnaire regarding their personal data, previous knowledge about ART, and general interest in training courses. The dentists also participated in an assessment process consisting of a test applied before and after the course. A single researcher corrected the tests, and intraexaminer reproducibility was calculated (kappa=0.89). Paired t-tests were carried out to compare the means between the assessments, showing a significant improvement in the performance of the subjects on the test taken after the course (p<0.05). A linear regression model was used with the difference between the means as the outcome. A greater improvement on the test results was observed among female dentists (p=0.034), dentists working for a shorter period of time in the public health system (p=0.042), and dentists who used the ART technique only for urgent and/or temporary treatment (p=0.010). In conclusion...

Este trabalho teve como objetivo analisar a tendência de mudanças na educação odontológica no Brasil em face à necessidade de implantação das Diretrizes Curriculares Nacionais para cursos de graduação em odontologia, aprovadas em 2002. O referencial teórico inclui as perspectivas da educação superior no Brasil em um contexto neoliberal, incluindo a área da saúde e a odontologia em particular apontando para a contradição da formação em saúde bucal no país que convive com um número crescente de faculdades de odontologia em todo o território nacional sem, contudo, responder às necessidades de atenção em saúde bucal de parcelas significativas da população brasileira. A metodologia partiu dos resultados da análise quantitativa obtidos pelo instrumento de avaliação utilizado durante as oficinas realizadas pela Associação Brasileira de Ensino Odontológico (ABENO) durante os anos de 2005 e 2006. O instrumento permitiu que cada participante avaliasse a instituição e o grau de inovação frente aos pressupostos das diretrizes curriculares segundo 3 eixos : orientação teórica do curso, abordagem pedagógica e cenários de prática. Cada eixo continha 3 vetores correspondendo ao tema analisado e cada participante avaliava o mesmo segundo 3 estágios possíveis (1- mais conservador; 2- intermediário e 3- mais inovador). Foram analisadas 48 faculdades (23 públicas e 25 privadas) de odontologia totalizando 1229 participantes entre professores (total de 711)...

Objetivo: Comparar o material restaurador indicado no tratamento de dentes posteriores de acordo com o ensino e realização dos tratamentos em duas Faculdades de Odontologia (UFRGS e ULBRA) e em 8 unidades básicas de saúde (UBS) do Sistema de Saúde Pública em Porto Alegre, Brasil. Materiais e Métodos: Os dados referentes ao ensino de procedimentos restauradores utilizando amálgama (AM) ou resina composta (RC) foram obtidos através da análise de prontuários de pacientes a questionários aplicados aos estudantes de Odontologia do último ano. Informações sobre os procedimentos restauradores nas UBS foram obtidas através de prontuários de pacientes e de questionários aplicados aos dentistas. O tipo de material restaurador utilizado nas Faculdade de Odontologia e nas UBS forma comparados através de teste Qui-quadrado. Resultados: Na UFRGS, 327 restaurações foram realizadas, sendo 78,28% RC e 21,72% AM; na ULBRA, 366 restaurações foram efetuadas, sendo 92,63% RC e 7,37% AM. Nas UBS, 1664 restaurações foram realizadas, sendo 35,93% RC e 64,07% AM. Uma maior proporção de restaurações de AM foram realizadas no Serviço Público de Saúde em comparação às Faculdades de Odontologia, nas quais restaurações com RC foram mais prevalentes (p=0.000). Conclusões: A mudança de AM para RC na escolha do material restaurador para dentes posteriores em Faculdades de Odontologia não foi seguida pelo Sistema Público de Saúde...

Factors related to the path of abstracts from presentation at a conference to publication as a full article have been analyzed in the medical field, but only a few studies have been performed in dentistry. This study investigated the rate of publication of articles based on abstracts presented at the American Dental Education Association (ADEA) Annual Session & Exhibition in 2002 and 2003 and the time lag to publication. This study also aimed to characterize the abstracts and subsequent articles and determine if there were any significant factors related to expansion of an abstract into a full manuscript. A total of 370 abstracts met the inclusion criteria and were examined for this study. Subsequent published articles were located using a standard PubMed search. Descriptive statistics and bivariate analyses were used to analyze the data collected (alpha=0.05). Results suggest that there was a low (19 percent) publication rate for articles based on abstracts presented at the meetings studied. The median time between abstract presentation and article publication was ten months. Factors that showed significant correlation to likelihood of article publication were multiple affiliations, presence of analytical statistics, and, to a lesser extent...

The objectives of this article are to provide a short history of dentistry and dental education in Brazil and to analyze the nature of its development to date. The databases consulted are those provided by the Brazilian Federal Council of Dentistry, Brazilian Ministry of Health, Brazilian Ministry of Education, National Institute of Studies and Educational Research Anisio Teixeira, and Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics. Formal dental education in Brazil started in the late nineteenth century with the creation of courses annexed to existing schools of medicine in Rio de Janeiro and Bahia. Today, there are 191 institutions of higher education nationwide granting degrees in dentistry (137 private [71.7 percent] and fifty-four public [28.3 percent]), with a total of 17,157 student positions offered annually. These schools graduate around 10,000 professionals per year-one of the highest rates in the world. Both the distribution of schools of dentistry and of dentists varies among the regions of the country, with the greatest concentrations in major metropolitan centers with high population density, resulting in limited coverage in the more deprived regions. A review of epidemiological data for oral health and distribution of dentists in Brazil indicates that there is a lack of systematic planning for the allocation of the dental workforce and a lack of consideration of regional needs in the development of dental training programs in Brazil today.

PURPOSE: To assess the internet usage among dental students at a private dental institution in India. METHODS: Internet usage was assessed among the first- to senior-year undergraduate dental students at the Darshan Dental College and Hospital, Udaipur, India. The study was conducted during the beginning of the academic year 2007-2008. Data were collected by using a questionnaire, which consisted of nine multiple choice questions. The chi-square test was used to compare the responses between male and female students and to analyze the difference among year classes. RESULTS: The total sample size was 247, and the overall response rate was 66%. Only 5.7% and 4.1% of the students used the internet daily for general and dental purposes, respectively. More than half the subjects (55.5%) never used the internet for academic purposes in comparison to 9.3% for general use. Nearly half of the subjects preferred home for internet access; only 7.9% accessed the internet at school. About 60% of the subjects used search engines to access dental subjects, and the students from clinical years used the search engines for dental education more often than the preclinical students (78% versus 41.2%, P=0.001). CONCLUSION: Dental students at this private dental institution in India reported lower levels of internet use than students in other countries...

A cohort of dental students (N=28) at the University of Manitoba was followed throughout their entire dental education program to explore changes in their perceptions of the learning environment over time. Aspects of the students’psychological functioning, including common psychological symptoms, self-esteem, and coping strategies, were also evaluated to assess changes in these factors over time. A battery of instruments consisting of the Learning Environment Survey (LES), the Symptom Questionnaire (SQ), the Ways of Coping Checklist (WCCL), and the State Self-Esteem Scale (SSES) was administered at the beginning, midpoint, and end of each academic year throughout the four-year dental education program. Results indicated that there was a minor positive recalibration of student perceptions in the areas of course relevance and opportunities for outside interests during the first months of year one. Apart from this, perceptions of dental school as a seldom-to-occasionally positive learning environment were maintained over the entire dental education program. In terms of psychological functioning over time, students reported decreases in their levels of problem-focused coping and self-esteem, increased use of avoidance and wishful thinking as coping strategies...

Research in the context of the dental school has traditionally been focused on institutional/faculty accomplishments and generating new knowledge to benefit the profession. Only recently have significant efforts been made to expand the overall research programming into the formal dental curriculum, to provide students with a baseline exposure to the research and critical thinking processes, encourage evidence-based decision-making, and stimulate interest in academic/research careers. Various approaches to curriculum reform and the establishment of multiple levels of student research opportunities are now part of the educational fabric of many dental schools worldwide. Many of the preliminary reports regarding the success and vitality of these programs have used outcomes measures and metrics that emphasize cultural changes within institutions, student research productivity, and student career preferences after graduation. However, there have not been any reports from long-standing programs (a minimum of 25 years of cumulative data) that describe dental school graduates who have had the benefit of research/training experiences during their dental education. The University of Manitoba Faculty of Dentistry initiated a BSc Dent program in 1980 that awarded a formal degree for significant research experiences taking place within the laboratories of the Faculty-based researchers and has continued to develop and expand this program. The success of the program has been demonstrated by the continued and increasing demands for entry...

The advent of globalization has changed our perspectives radically. It presents increased understanding of world affairs, new challenges and exciting opportunities. The inequitable distribution and use of finite energy resources and global warming are just two examples of challenges that can only be addressed by concerted international collaboration. Globalization has become an increasingly important influence on dentistry and dental education. The International Federation for Dental Educators and Associations (IFDEA) welcomes the challenges it now faces as a player in a complex multifaceted global community. This report addresses the new circumstances in which IFDEA must operate, taking account of the recommendations made by other working groups. The report reviews the background and evolution of IFDEA and describes the extensive developments that have taken place in IFDEA over the past year with the introductions of a new Constitution and Bylaws overseen by a newly established Board of Directors. These were the consequence of a new mission, goals and objectives for IFDEA. An expanded organization is planned using http://www.IFDEA.org as the primary instrument to facilitate the exchange of knowledge, programmes and expertise between colleagues and federated associations throughout the world...

The purpose of this study was to investigate changes in dental students’ perceptions of professionalism, knowledge, and emotion over the period of dissection in a human anatomy course. Whether human dissection needs to be a part of the modern dental curriculum is often called into question, particularly with the plethora of electronic and other aids available to support the learning of anatomy. The influence of the dissection process on development of professional attitudes and emotional maturity has been studied in medical students, but how dental students react to this part of their education is less well known. To investigate this question, a survey was administered before and after the dissection course to two sequential year groups of dental students. It was found that these students had high levels of understanding of professional values before commencing dissection and continued to value the role of teamwork in aiding their learning over the survey period. The majority of students coped well with the assimilation of knowledge and developed coping mechanisms to handle the emotional aspects of dissection. The students remained excited by and interested in dissection, and the majority valued it as the most positive aspect of their anatomy course. The students increasingly valued the use of prosected specimens as an aid to learning. This study confirmed that significant changes occur in dental students’ attitudes during the period of dissection...

Clinical placements away from the dental school are now an integral and important component of dental education internationally. This article presents feedback from students on their experience in a remote rural clinical placement in Australia by year cohorts 2009, 2010, and 2011. An online feedback survey instrument and compulsory reflective journals were analyzed both by calendar year cohort and amongst individual student groups. The information obtained suggests that overall this was a very positive experience for most students and the clinical experience gained was valued highly. Many students wrote positively about their cultural experiences and the knowledge they gained of life in a remote rural area. Many were pleased with the contribution they made to the oral health treatment needs of the community. Concerns related to the lower patient flow and the inferior quality of equipment compared to that in the main university clinic and with delays in maintaining and repairing equipment. While the overall outcome was positive, significant challenges face all stakeholders to maintain and enhance the clinical and social experiences of these future practitioners. The true impact of the placement will only be realized when graduates are confident to venture into clinical practice settings in rural locations.; Ratilal Lalloo...

Minimally invasive dentistry (MID), together with patient-centred care (PCC), can be considered central to patient management. These approaches have been incorporated in the structure of various dental curricula and indeed formally assessed. However, there is limited evidence that students have an integrated skill-set and are able to apply these skills when providing direct patient care within the clinical setting. Assessment of students' application of core clinical skills has identified numerous deficiencies that need to be addressed. The revised Bachelor of Dental Surgery curriculum at the School of Dentistry, The University of Adelaide, provides an example of how MID, underpinned by PCC, can be presented throughout a dental curriculum. Essentially, MID and PCC are not considered as separate subjects but as a patient management approach that is 'woven into the whole fabric' of the curriculum. The programme relies on the development of empathic communication skills that enable students to obtain key patient information, including their patients' values, beliefs, needs, preferences and expectations, thereby allowing management to be tailor-made. As a result, patients are empowered to be a part of the oral health care team. The Adelaide undergraduate dental curriculum consists of one clinical stream called Dental Science and Practice (DSP)...

In 2002, the Brazilian Ministry of Education approved the official curricular guidelines for undergraduate courses in Brazil to be adopted by the nation's 188 dental schools. In 2005-06, the Brazilian Dental Education Association (BDEA) promoted workshops in forty-eight of the schools to verify the degree of transformation of the curriculum based on these guidelines. Among the areas analyzed were course philosophy (variables were v1: knowledge production based on the needs of the Brazilian Public Health System [BPHS]; v2: health determinants; and v3: postgraduate studies and permanent education); pedagogical skills (v4: curricular structure; v5: changes in pedagogic and didactic skills; and v6: course program orientation); and dental practice scenarios (v7: diversity of the scenarios for training/learning; v8: academic health care centers opened to the BPHS; and v9: participation of students in health care delivery for the population). The subjects consisted of faculty members (n=711), students (n=228), and employees (n=14). The results showed an incipient degree of curriculum transformation. The degree of innovation was statistically different depending on the type of university (public or private) for variables I, 2, 4, 5, 6, and 7. Private schools reported a higher level of innovation than public institutions. Resistance to transforming the dental curriculum according to the official guidelines may be linked to an ideological conception that supports the private practice model...

A cárie dentária é uma doença multifatorial que engloba fatores necessários, determinantes e moduladores. O conhecimento dos fatores da doença cárie possibilita melhor entendimento e reconhecimento dos seus sinais e sintomas, e, assim, pode-se estabelecer o grau de atividade das lesões e escolha de planos de tratamento adequados a cada indivíduo, visando à promoção e manutenção do bem estar da saúde bucal dos indivíduos. Para que este problema de saúde pública seja controlado, a população precisa de profissionais de saúde generalistas. Porém, a prática biologista e a visão fragmentada dos profissionais formados, acarretam limitações nesta ação integral. Desta forma, o objetivo geral deste trabalho foi verificar a abordagem clínica dos estudantes formandos, em duas instituições de ensino (uma pública e outra particular), em relação à doença cárie. Utilizou-se de um caso clínico, contendo os dados do paciente, fotos dos dentes e das radiografias - projetadas em sala de aula, para que os estudantes apontassem o plano de tratamento, com questões fechadas (dente a dente) e uma questão discursiva. O caso demonstrava lesões de cárie inativas nos dentes decíduos e lesões de manchas brancas ativas nos dentes permanentes. As respostas dos estudantes foram dicotomizadas para análises estatísticas utilizando-se o teste Qui-quadrado (p?0...

PURPOSE: In Brazil, the SINAES is a process that is currently used to assess higher education institutions, undergraduate programs and students' performance on the ENADE national exam. This study aimed at assessing the Brazilian undergraduate programs in Dentistry, inquiring if the evaluation results induced to changes to improve the teaching-learning process. METHODS: This cross-sectional study utilized a questionnaire that was e-mailed to 165 professors/coordinators of undergraduate programs in Dentistry in Brazil in 2003/2004. The data analysis was based on the themes of the various open- and closed-ended questions: questions 1, 2, 3 and 4 referred to the evaluation of each institution and its undergraduate program, whereas questions 5, 6 and 7 referred to the ENADE. RESULTS: Changes to improve the quality of teaching in Dentistry and the education of new professionals were driven by the results of the evaluation. These changes were implemented at all institutions that returned the completed questionnaires. CONCLUSION: Improvements in the quality of Brazilian Dentistry will only be possible if the education of the students and the professors is improved.
